Violent Muslims Hurl Petrol Bombs at British Embassy Scores of Iranian demonstrators hurled petrol bombs at the British embassy on Tuesday in renewed protests over the publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad and Western opposition to Tehran's nuclear ambitions.
The protesters, mostly religious seminary students, chanted "Death to Tony Blair", "Death to Britain" and Death to America" while throwing hundreds of stones at the embassy buildings, smashing many windows.
This is interesting behavior from the so-called "religion of peace" considering that the U.K. and the U.S. have spoken out against publication of those cartoons.
Historians should not be surprised by this rabid, animalistic violence that these cartoons have elicited. It is nothing new. According to historical documents, Mohammad, himself, ordered the murders of people who disagreed with him or made fun of him.
From a contemporary Muslim scholar -- Ali Dashti's "23 Years: A Study of the Prophetic Career of Mohammad", , page 100:
"Abu Afak, a man of great age (reputedly 120 years) was killed because he had lampooned Mohammad. The deed was done by Salem b. Omayr at the behest of the Prophet, who had asked, "Who will deal with this rascal for me?" The killing of such an old man moved a poetess, Asma b. Marwan, to compose disrespectful verses about the Prophet, and she too was assassinated." _____________________________________________
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
